TOO HOT TO GO TO CHURCH?

Hot isn’t it?  Think about it a while and you will feel even more uncomfortable. 

    Any Doctor will tell you that one of the best     ways to  lick the heat is to go and RELAX, get your mind on something else.  Now to many folks that means sitting down in the most comfortable chair and reading the funnies or a good book.  But, there are better ways than that to RELAX on Sundays.  Go Fishing?  No, that’s not God’s answer. 

One thing we all know – even when the weather is at it’s hottest, we can’t afford to neglect EATING!  But how about the BREAD of LIFE?  Can we afford to neglect our SPIRITUAL FOOD?

As a matter of fact, it is NEVER too hot to go to Church.  And you will find the relaxation of mind you receive to be the spiritual tonic for the soul to beat the heat.

Come to Church Sunday – You will receive a lift that will make you forget all about  the heat.  Join us singing the grand ole hymn and praise choruses of the Church, lift up your heart in prayer, hear an energizing word from the Word of God; listen to the vital message.

For the good of your mind and body, and for the good of your soul, beat the heat, Come To Church Every Sunday!

Morbus Sabbaticus (Sundayitis)

Sundayitis – (Also known as “Morbus Sabbaticus”) – This baffling condition produces symptoms that are only seen on Sunday.  It produces acute laziness in the person afflicted.  It causes them to sleep in, or it can make them spend the day in the mountains or at the lake.  This strange disease never seems to affect singings or eating meetings, but only those services where the Word of God is featured.  Symptoms are usually worse from 9 AM to 12 PM. Here are some of its symptoms:

  1. It never interferes with the appetite.
  2. It never lasts more than twenty-four hours at a time.
  3. No physician is ever called.
  4. It always proves fatal in the end – to the soul, anyway.

5.       It is contagious – husbands have been known to give it to wives, wives to husbands, children to parents, parents to children, and friends to friends, and etc.

The attack usually comes on suddenly every Sunday. No ill effects are felt on Saturday night, and the patient awakes as usual, feeling fine. He eats a hearty breakfast. About 9:00 A.M. the attack comes on – sometimes earlier – and it lasts until around noon.

During the afternoon, the sufferer feels better. He is able to take a ride and read the Sunday Newspaper. The patient eats a hearty supper and seems fine – but the attack comes on again, 5 or 6 PM, and lasts through the evening. When the clock sounds on Monday morning, the patient is usually – somehow – able to make it to work as usual, but sadly he usually suffers a relapse on Wednesday that keeps him away from prayer meeting.

As you go through this summer, PLEASE protect your soul by taking the a regular dose of Sunday Morning, Sunday Evening and Wednesday Evening Worship! Hebrews 10:24-25 (KJV) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

As you make your plans this summer, REMEBER TO WORSHIP THE LORD ON SUNDAY, He did not forget you!

Diary of a Bible

January: A busy time for me. Most of the family decided to read me through this year. They kept me busy for the first two weeks, but they have forgotten me now.

February: Clean-up time. I was dusted yesterday and put back in my place. My owner did use me for a few minutes last week. He had been in an argument and was looking up some references to prove he was right.

March: Had a busy day first of the month. My owner was elected president of the PTA and used me to prepare for a speech.

April: Grandpa visited us this month. He kept me on his lap for an hour reading 1 Cor. 13. He seems to think more of me than do some people in my own household.

May: I have a few green stains on my pages. Some spring flowers were pressed in my pages.

June: I look like a scrapbook. They have stuffed me full of newspaper clippings- one of the girls was married.

July: They put me in a suitcase today. I guess we are off on vacation. I wish I could stay home; I know I’ll be closed up in this thing for at least two weeks.

August: Still in the suitcase.

September: Back home at last and in my old familiar place. I have a lot of company. Two women’s magazine’s and four comic books are stacked on top of me. I wish I could be read as much as they are.

October: They read me a little bit today. One of them is sick. Right now I am sitting in the center of the coffee table. I think that the Pastor is coming by for a visit.

November: Back in my old place. Somebody asked today if I were a scrapbook.

December: The family is busy getting ready for the holidays. I guess I’ll be covered up under wrapping paper and packages again…. just as I am every Christmas.

“I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.” Psalm 119:93
